The tour was fantastic. I love to travel and usually take a few tours as it is a quick education on so much of the area. This tour was outstanding. The guide Angelique was informative, interesting and kept her group enthrawled for almost 2 hrs. She answered questions with ease. She has a good sence of humor and is well prepared to talk of architecture, Louisville's rich history of bourbon, tobacco, gambling & religion. How societies upper class spent their money inorder to be seen as important in society. We saw the most beautiful neighborshoods on foot. We also got many ideas of things to do in the future, like the Shakespeare festival in a free park. An art fair in a hidden path. We recommendations of great food. I cant recommend this tour enough for seeing old school wealth in a fantastic city called Louisville!
